This game left me blowed away after i finished the story of the original BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, i had to go and pick this one up. There mostly good changes but there are some disappointing ones. I'm just going to review some aspect of the game and i'm not going to say anything about the plot so i can't spoil it. The Good: This game had alot of improvement whiten the character balancing, more combos, also adding more to the original characters with more to play, just fascinating. The story again its long (because of the Alternative Endings, Gag Reels, Every Characters Point of View). The graphics are amazing for a Animated 2D fighter, you notice the beautiful 2D environment look almost 3Dish. Character animation and voice is done to perfection. Has alot of reply value compared to BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger (Which i put more than 40 hours of gamplay to it) The Bad: The reason why i gaved this not a 10/10 it because there was some aspect that really disappointed me. First is the lack of the dialogue is mostly done by just characters sitting in a still picture with their mouth moving, or if they get hurt, it just shows a slight animation. The cutscene are not alot and are really brief. I was hoping Arksys would have implemented a better way to show the story, but even so i still found it decent without the lack of these, it's still worth a look. Also the lack of removing the "hardcore" stuff out of the BlazBlue series. Seriously, some parts were like driven away from the plot because there were a laughing stock material (Not the Gag Reels), which somewhat disappointed me, but gaved me a good laugh, but it drove sometimes away from the BlazBlue plot. And i just had to mention it, the announcer sound of the original BlazBlue was much better. Recommendation: Even if you're a fan of 2D fighters or not (Trust me i was not a fan of these, i would normally play Call of Duty, Battlefield, Halo, etc.) you should try this game, it might not look decent like Mortal Kombat 9, or Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade or Marvel vs Capcom 3, but i find it more fun and more appealing to me than these other games. After i picked up BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger for the first time, i just couldn't drop it. Sure it might not have EVERYTHING perfect but it a very decent game, and it should atleast give it a try sometime. 9.5/10 Can't wait for the next BlazBlue to release to continue the story where it left off on the beginning.
yes: I recommend this product
